This petition is important to the people of United State of America, India and many other countries which are continuously affected by Pakistan sponsored terrorism.
Response to Petition
Thank you for using the We the People platform to sign this petition on Pakistan and state sponsored terrorism.
While recognizing the sacrifices of the people and the security forces of Pakistan in fighting some militant and terrorist networks -- a fight which we support -- President Obama has emphasized that Pakistan "can and must" also take more effective action against terrorist groups operating from its soil. The President has made it very clear that no state should allow its territory to be used by terrorists to launch attacks into another state, and we will continue to engage on this issue.
Since the bill cited by the petition remains in draft, we will not comment on it here, per our Terms of Participation.
Thanks again for making your voice heard.
-- The We the People Team
